Thnx again to the one and only Charlie Miller!
Great example of Famous Fall ‘79 on display. Brent getting in there and playing his own sound, the boys rocking hard and also putting out some smooth soft ballads .... thank you cleaveland! Man, ‘79 was truly something. Glad to have good sound quality to prove the naysayers that the Dead did bring it! RIP Jerry. Miss u daily!

Alabama Getaway is paired, almost without exception, with either Promised Land or Greatest Story. It's a great way to open a show with a bang. Don't get me wrong, the Jackstraw opener from the night before is really marvelous as well, but if the boys wanted to rock, this was a go to opener. I think they wanted to rock this night, there is a higher than normal bit of improvisational lyrics in the first set, particularly from Jerry who just seems to have a fire in his belly.
Besides, any show with a Candyman and a High Time is special in my book.

Great '79 Show
The first set was bit hit and miss for me but the pre-drum second set run is excellent with a super-fast Eyes common to the era. Jerry just rips it.

This show thumps
Standout versions of BE Women, LL Rain. Jerry really starts to let go with the fast driven noodling during
Samson and Eyes, which is stellar.

Easy 4.5...Good Stuff All Around
Another one of those sources and shows that really should be at about 4 1/2 stars. 4 for the performance, which is yet another example of the great run that was Fall 79. First Set smokes and the Second kicks it up a notch. Band is in the groove and doesn't waste a single note. Now the sound I'd have to give 5 stars. Clear and crispy. Phil is upfront and center, driving the train with great sound and depth. Good work on this one. Without a doubt worth a listen.
